If youre looking for a long-term volunteering opportunity, the International Humanity Foundation is offering you the chance to help in one of our education centers and childrens homes in Indonesia.
IHF is looking for hard-working, committed volunteers to help in our childrens homes and education centers in Indonesia. IHF provides education, and in some cases, homes, to children in need in six centers across Indonesia, Thailand and Kenya. IHF has no central headquarters; each center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host country.
We have four centers in Indonesia, in Bali, Jakarta, Medan and Banda Aceh. Our Jakarta and Aceh centers provide homes to a small number of children, while all centers offer English, math and computer classes to disadvantaged children. With a population of over 240 million, Indonesias public education system often fails to give children a chance to escape the poverty they were born into. We fill that gap and give kids a chance to aim higher.
At the center, you will divide your time between caring for the children and working on international tasks. IHF is a grassroots, all-volunteer organisation with no central office, so all administration work is done in center. All volunteers manage one or more of our international task teams such as university relations, fundraising and media; working together online with volunteers in other centers. You will be assigned according to your experience. You must possess excellent time management skills.
Those who are secure without the comforts of home gain the most from this valuable opportunity. We are looking for applicants preferably with:
- A related university degree; eg. in social studies, language, teaching, medicine, law, social work
- Experience abroad; travel, working or volunteering
- 1-2 years working experience in any field
- Experience with teaching and/or children
Fluency in English, both written and spoken is essential. Those interested in volunteering at an IHF centre are required to complete a level of pre-trip duties in order to gain an understanding of how our organization functions.
Stipend: Volunteers must commit to serve at least a year at the center. Basic accommodation and food is provided by IHF. You are a volunteer at the center, and all local taskscompleted are done so without pay. Volunteers who commit to serving one year or more will receive a small monthly stipend. It is broken down as follow:-
First 3 months: Training period - $20 per month
3-6 months: Assistant co-Director - $50 per month
6-9 months: Co-Director - $80 per month
9-12 months: Co-Director - $100 per month
This stipend results only from the international online work; not from any local tasks.
After one year there is the opportunity to become a full Director.
Strict IHF Policy: These stipends are fixed. They will not be raised for more experienced applicants, and everyone will be upgraded according to the timeframes outlined above, and no sooner. There are no exceptions to this, regardless of what may be the situation in the centre. We are an all-Volunteer organization and training and hands-on experience is paramount.
